silk bag revival
For last night's Friday Night with Friends I decided to take a short break from playing with fabrics and instead I picked up one of my old embroidery project boxes; this particular one has not been touched since we moved house. It has my silk bag embroidery in it.
The design comes from one of the old issues of Classic Inspirations magazine. Actually, most of the embroidery is done, there was only one motif still to be stitched and that's what I was working on last night.
I did not manage to finish it last night completely, but only some lavender bullions are still to be done.
Thank you, Cheryll , for hosting last night.
I'll see you next month!
This has been a very good exercise in bullion stitches.
Now I need to find something nice to line the bag with, preferably another piece of silk.
This kind of embroidery makes a nice change from quilts and I do enjoy bullion stitches.
Some of you might remember my silk cushion, also a project from one of the old issues of Classic Inspirations. A picture of my finished cushions was published in one the later issues of the magazine.
